Mashups made there way into the literary world as well when Pride & Prejudice & Zombies hit
best seller lists. Now we've had Sense & Sensibility & Sea Monsters, Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter, Little Vampire Women, and Jane Slayer to name a few.
How do you feel as writers about literary mashups? Clever? Silly?
Marketing ploy? I myself think they're quite clever, and an interesting way to get today's generation reading the classics. And really, they're total commercial fun, right? But I can see why someone would argue otherwise.
My real question is...what's next?
While you ponder, I'll leave you with one of my favorite pop music mashups...enjoy!
